Dr. Meeko Oishi’s research focuses on hybrid systems and control.  She creates methods to provide guarantees of safety and performance in cyberphysical systems through careful design of controllers and user-interfaces (for systems that are not fully automated). Techniques her group has developed have been applied to aircraft flight management systems, automated anesthesia delivery, and space vehicle docking.  Dr. Oishi also works in biomedical systems, using control theoretic techniques to identify potential biomarkers for early detection of disease, characterize disease subtypes, as well as provide insight into faulty feedback mechanisms in the brain.
